Hello Team,

Welcome to February and a Happy (belated) Valentine's Day to you all!! I hope you all had a fantastic day spent with the ones you {LOVE}!

I wanted to send you a quick note with our highlights for January and some upcoming events. As always, I like to start off the monthly newsletter with an announcement of our team volume for the previous month. Our total team volume for the month of January was an incredible $56,093.50!! This is an amazing number given that January is typically a "down" month in the direct sales industry! Way to go!!

And finally....

I know this is a long newsletter (no doubt, probably one of the longest newsletters I've sent to you), but I can't leave you without sharing with you a little of what has been on my heart since the start of the year.

I have been challenged this year to get out of my comfort zone - to confront my fears and insecurities and go at 2014 with a passion I didn't know was inside of me - and to live this year with NO REGRETS. This motivation truly began when I attended the very first ever Origami Owl Director's Training in Scottsdale, Arizona. Mostly, because I never thought in a million years I would be there (I have you, my amazing team, to thank for that), but also because I want to make this year my year of purposely effecting change in those around me. I want to stop existing and start living!! What about you? Did you know that the top 5 regrets of those who are lying are their deathbed are:

  1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
  2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard.
  3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.
  4. I wish I'd stayed in touch with my friends.
  5. I wish that I'd let myself be happier.

Don't let those regrets be your regrets. Don't say, "I wish I had!" Say, "I'm so glad I did." I truly feel that I have been given a gift in Origami Owl, and this year I want to make the most of the gift I've been given. This gift has already taken me further than I ever thought I could go, but now that I'm here, I realize I want more. I want to make a difference in the live of others, and with Origami Owl, I've been given a platform to do just that. I refuse to let people, circumstances, or even my own excuses stand in my way - and most of all, I refuse to live this year with regrets.

I want to share with you a clip that was played at the Director's Training. In four short minutes, it captures all that is in my heart.

But is nothing but a dream killer

"But" is an argument for our limitations, and when we argue for our limitations we get to keep them. Don't allow "but" to keep you in a corner! Don't be afraid to live your dream this year. Each one of YOU have greatness inside you. NOW is the time to embrace your life and start living your destiny.

I love you all more than you will ever know. You have the ability to do more than you can ever imagine. Make this year YOUR year.

Love always,
